Dex One Realigns Interactive Operations [eon.businesswire.com]
Dex One Corporation today announced it is realigning its interactive operations and will fully integrate Business.com into Dex One. As a result, the company plans to phase out the standalone, national business-to-business sales and marketing operation and focus exclusively on the Dex One business.
"Three years ago, Dex One required an infusion of talent and technology assets to support the expansion of its digital portfolio. The purchase of Business.com enabled Dex One to build the DexKnows.com local search platform, create the DexNet distributed ad network, and develop a robust account and content management system,” said Alfred Mockett, chief executive officer of Dex One. “While the acquisition delivered on a number of fronts, the Business.com operations are no longer viable and are not a part of our long-term plans."
The domain sold for 350 million USD in 2007 - Can you believe that!
I think this is more a case business.com failing to improve their business model over time.
They should've acquired a few business communities and made it a business resource center plus(+) the directory.
overestimate the power of a good domain name
"It's work, man. Every day work."
"Almost like . . like it's a job . . dude."
"Bummer, dude! Bummer! I thought your were onto something with that Business.com domain thing."
